A Lifetime of Consequences

In Florida, crime victims can be denied aid if they have committed certain felonies, no matter how old the conviction is. In 2015 and 2016, the state denied victim's compensation to 1,069 people for that reason. Each line below represents one person who was denied compensation in cases where race is known. It shows how much time went by between their conviction and victimization.
